Physical Science Activities Manual ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Center of Excellence for Science and Mathematics Education at The University of Martin Decay Rate of Orangium # of Tosses 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 0 5 10 15 7. Read from the graph the "half-life" of "ORANGIUM" (the number of tosses it took for half of the total cubes to come up with an orange face.) [If the total # of cubes was 500, then how many tosses did it require for 250 of them to come up with an orange face? On the y-axis find 250; draw a line horizontal to the x-axis (the dotted line) starting at 250 and stopping when it reaches the curve. Now starting at this point on the curve, draw a line parallel to the y-axis (dotted line) until it crosses the x-axis. Read how many tosses it says it took to have 250 cubes come up with an orange face. Does this match up with how many throws it took? Check your data table. According to our mythical data the graph would indicate that about 3.8 tosses would be required to have 250 of the cubes come up with an orange face. If we look at the table we see that after three tosses 206 of them had come up orange.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
